My first memories of Penny's Hill Cracking Black Shiraz go as far back as the early 00s when Ben Riggs was heading up the winemaking. Back then it was incredible value for money, and somehow some 20 or so vintages, and a few different winemakers later the ethos is still the same. A really inky broody colour, with the legs clinging to the glass, and a really deep hue. It's a great wine to sniff, it jumps up from the glass with blackberry, liquorice, a little cedar, black pepper and grilled meat. The palate is rich, generous and mouthcoating. Sweet and juicy up front blackberry jube, liquorice, pepper before fine grippy tannins kick in and drive a very long, chocolate bullet finish with pops of umami. This year's feels a little more serious than the hedonistic party juice that was the 2018.
